The catalog of best practices in social entrepreneurship includes projects from the interregional stage of the All-Russian competition “My Good Business”. On website The competition contains information about almost 900 projects of various types.

“One of the goals of the “My Good Business” competition is to identify the best practices of social entrepreneurship. The creation of a catalog that includes solutions that have been highly praised by 480 experts from various fields is a logical continuation of this story. In 2023, we collected more than 2 thousand applications from 85 regions of the country. The increase in activity of competition participants was 30% compared to the previous year. It is interesting that in the Year of the Family we are observing trends related to this topic: the number of participants among women entrepreneurs has increased by 40%; most of the applications that have advanced to the next stage are related to the field of education and raising children. The regions with the largest number of applications are Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod and Orenburg regions,” said Deputy Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation Tatyana Ilyushnikova.

The best project in the field of additional education and upbringing of children” – 174 projects; The best project in the field of healthy lifestyle, physical education and sports – 143 projects; The best project in the field of support and rehabilitation of people with disabilities – 133 projects.

“The increase in the number and quality of applications indicates the effective work of specialists and curators supporting the competition in the regions. This speaks not only of the expansion of the entrepreneurial sphere, but also of the involvement of business in socially significant and socially beneficial initiatives throughout the country. 878 projects—winners of the regional stage from each region in all presented nominations—proceeded to the next stage,” noted Yulia Zhigulina, executive director of the Our Future Foundation.
